A missing elderly couple from Southwest Washington have been found safe after almost two days while trying to cross the Canadian border in Whatcom County.
Crystil and Wesley Cherry left their home in Vancouver, Wash., around 10 p.m. on June 1. Crystil Cherry, 72, and Wesley Cherry, 81, were both in need of medical attention, according to an alert sent out from the Vancouver Police Department.
The pair were stopped Monday morning at the Peace Arch border crossing in Whatcom County while they were trying to cross into British Columbia, according to Whatcom County Undersheriff Doug Chadwick.
Chadwick said the alert for the Cherrys had been canceled.
The Cherrys were receiving medical attention at the border, but were otherwise found safe, said Kim Kapp, public information coordinator with the Vancouver Police Department. Kapp said the person who reported the Cherrys missing was on their way to pick them up.
